5K & Fun Run


We are unable to reschedule the 2020 edition of the Bishop O'Connell "Better Together" 5K & Fun Run. We are disappointed to miss the camaraderie, togetherness and community spirit we would have shared at an in-person event, but we are moving forward to still support the school and inclusive education.

Find out how you can still participate...


We Are All Better Together!

The race benefits expanded services for O'Connell students with cognitive and intellectual disabilities.  Join our students, alumni, parents, neighbors and friends in a great celebration of INCLUSION and the O'Connell spirit.
